7D6N Tour of Taiwan
Travel into the wealth of Taiwan’s natural attractions and scenic sanctums, as the tour draws you into the folds of Taoyuan, Hualien, Chihpen, Kaohsiung City, Taichung, and Taipei. Fall into admiration with wide-reaching landscapes of verdant national parks and take a daring dip into humble bubbling hot springs, as your guide helms stops along various spots of significance, while meals come prepared as per the itinerary.

Explore a shifted take on the term ‘living large’ at the Miniatures Museum of Taiwan, where miniature dioramas and varied minuscule settings form a grand cornucopia of tiny worlds. Founded by natives Lin Wen-Jen and Lin Chin-Mei, the gallery features collections of miniatures gathered over the span of the couple’s worldwide travels, as well as contributory pieces sourced from European and American artists.

Venture into verdant green forest tracts and take in the scenery of Taroko National Park, a culmination of the nation’s efforts in nature conservation alongside its wider pursuits of economic growth and modernisation. Established in 1986, the national park shelters a plenitude of scenic vantage points, like the towering platforms of Qingshui Cliff, affording viewers a wide-reaching view of the Pacific Ocean undulating below.

Bask in scenes of traditional artistry and architectural wonders at the Spring and Autumn Pavilions in Kaohsiung. Situated south of the Lotus Lake esplanade, the two towers were completed in 1951 and stand in honour of Kuan Kung, or the God of War. Travelling further south from the towers, the tour makes a stop at the Dragon and Tiger Pavilions, a pairing of towering structures imposing in their own right. Visitors make their way through the dragon-mouth entrance and exit via its neighbouring passageway, veritably resembling a crouching tiger - with the belief of turning bad luck into good fortunes.

Known to hold the largest body of water in Taiwan, the Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area boasts sprawling views of the surrounding coastal panoramas. In addition to being the muse for many a poet, the lake’s surrounding tract yields tranquil sights of cerulean waters and cherry blossoms in early Spring, earning the scenic route a spot in CNN’s list of the world’s most breathtaking cycling routes.

Before winding down to the tour’s end, launch leisurely excursions into the variety of shopping hubs and markets lining Taipei’s commercial district. Browse branded buys and fashion necessities at 101 Shopping Mall, or saunter on down to the streets, where Shihlin’s famed Night Market offers a smorgasbord of crafts, accessories, and the odd trinket or two; in addition to local cuisine favourites including oyster omelettes, jumbo sausages, ribs stewed in herbal brews, Shanghai buns, and more.
